grips-stretching problem

957 Views, 6 Replies

Hello All

 

I can't seem to figure out this problem and this will apply to all lines. I am trying to stretch a line using the grips but when I do, the line will reduce to the actually length that I am either trying to increase or decrease it by.

 

For example

 

A line is 6'0" long, I want to use the grips and stretch it and reduce the amount by 6" but instead the line reduces to 6" long.

 

I can't seem to find the variable to fix this.

 

Can someone tell me where to change this.

 

Thanks

 

Kevin

Turn off Dynamic Input (F12) or press CTRL while gripping to cycle through the target input.

ACAD 2012/ 2011 SP2 there is a problem with Osnaps.  You have Tangent or Perpendicular in your default Osnaps.  Something is not right and it seems when you are stretching these two osnaps interfere. (So some computers don't have it on and some do or some have SP2 and some don't)

 

The other suggestions are good and may help. But, be aware.  Work around presently is to turn those two osnaps off by default. This issue has just come to our attention.

 

Thanks

I have been struggling with that line grip editing issue ever since Autocad Architecture 2012 came out - is there a predicted date for the solution?

 

Many thanks

I have several posting flagged and will let them know if I know of any further information on this (like service packs or other solutions). The best work around currently is to call perpendicular using per and tangent using tan instead of keeping them on in the osnap settings.

I can say that 2013 will have the stretching problem addressed so that the perpendicular and tangent osnaps do not interfere with the operation. This problem was presented to us after the 2012 service pack 1, but is marked to be considered for a future service pack if there is one (I am not someone who knows this).
